Mrs. Michele Samaniego

This is my 20th year teaching. I have taught second, third, and fourth grade, Reading Recovery, Special Education, and ESL. Prior to coming to Sienna Crossing, I spent two and a half years as the FBISD ELA K-2 Curriculum Coordinator. Every year has been exciting and memorable, as I have been lucky to teach wonderful students and work with fabulous teachers. My husband, Adrian, and I moved from Austin to the Sugar Land area in 1997. We have two children, Mackenzie and Gavin. I'm the oldest of six children, and all of my family continues to live in San Antonio, where I grew up.

I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin (Go Horns!) in 1996 with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education with a specialization in Special Education. I completed my Masters in Reading Instruction in 2001 and an additional Principal certification.

In my classroom, I promote an atmosphere of safety, trust, and respect. I value cooperation and collaboration both in my classroom and as I work with my peers. I believe that great things can happen when we work together! Sienna Crossing Elementary is a great place, and I am so excited about being surrounded by such enthusiastic students, staff, and parents.
